Theme            Program

For the first time since its inception the Annual Conference of the World Association for Sustainable Development (WASD) will be co-organized with, and hosted by a United Nations body, namely the Joint Inspection Unit of the United Nations system (JIU) in the Palais des Nations – Geneva, as an expression of participatory, open and multi-stakeholder approach that underlies the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. Both JIU and WASD are inspired by the conviction that the 2030 Agenda and its 17 goals provides momentum for a renewed UN engagement with the private sector.
